2015 Family of the Year

Richard & Barbara Scheffki
Presented by Loren Becht, Past Grand Knight



You know as Knights we stay in the background doing God’s work, not looking for recognition, or awards. This year’s Family of the Year Award is going to just that type of a family, Richard and Barbara Scheffki. Richard is a 4th degree Knight, Charter Member of this Council, past Grand Knight, and an Usher at 9:00 AM Mass. He is also a 4th degree officer of Bishop Shields Assembly. Dick also organizes any of the Honor Guard requests for our Council and is the Chairperson for the Kiwanis peanut drive.

His lovely wife Barb is a Charter Member and past President of the Ladies Auxiliary. She is the Coordinator of the Ministers of Care, distributing Communion to the sick and home bound as well as a Eucharistic Minister at Mass. She Chair’s the Ladies committee of prayer and also finds time to volunteer at the Library.

Together they operate the van on Sundays to bring the home bound and elderly to celebrate Sunday Mass.

Please assist me in giving Richard and Barbara Scheffki a standing ovation and presenting them the Family of the Year Award and thanking them all that they do. God Bless
